What would you be doing if you weren't working at JT/in public affairs?

I’d be a poor, struggling sketch and improv performer, just trying to land a low-paying cruise ship gig.

James joined JT fresh out of college as an intern in 2007. Since joining the company, he has worked for clients spanning a variety of fields, including legislative and public advocacy, biotechnology, tourism and conventions, education and government.

James’s current and past projects include performing media relations for the Joyce Foundation, grassroots outreach for the Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, website development for the Cambodia Tribunal Monitor, marketing research for the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, ad copywriting for Heat & Frost Insulators Local 17, and video production for the biotechnology industry.

James earned his bachelor’s degree in English with a minor in marketing from The College of William & Mary.
